Store owners warned of possible payment-terminal scam

Two men asking to check out payment processing terminals in Kamloops stores may be scammers, the Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association says.

The pair claimed to be representatives of Moneris or Royal Bank and asked to see the stores' point-of-sale devices.

They promise to save 40 per cent on processing fees.

The men appear to be Latinos. One is about six feet with a narrow face, and black hair with a curl in front. He was wearing a plaid white and grey jacket and dress pants. The other is shorter with a chubby face, short black wavy hair and a charcoal jacket.

Store owners who have had dealings with them are urged to check to ensure their terminals have not been tampered with.

Merchants can call the RCMP at 250-828-3000 if they have concerns.

Update: Moneris has told The Daily News that the two men were working on behalf of Moneris and were authorized to sell the company’s payment processing, debit and credit card processing products and services.
